My photography has been lacking consistency so this project will simply require me to upload one finished image a week for 2018. Only restrictions will be; must be shot in the last fortnight and cropped to 16:9. The project will, imaginatively, be known as '52'. Simon
Week 20: Shooting with the Iphone SE again this week. We road tripped to and from Cambridge and visited lots of service stations on the way. They aren't the most glamorous locations but the peace after the constant hum of the road makes them somewhat alluring.
Week 19: The weather has turned nice and there's loads of photos to be had, it was a tough choice for a photo this week. After some deliberation I decided this image best captures the atmosphere in the garden right now. 
Week 18: Taken on iphone SE at the start of a long run in the hils. The trail took me up the left side of the Glen into the trees and cloud. I couldn't see much of the view but the serenity of running through the clouds was absolutely magical.
Week 17: A "snapshot" taken on my way to work. Nothing fancy but I find the image to be strangely compelling.
Week 16: Self portrait
Week 15: Dropped by Pollok house whilst out scouting for city night shot locations. You used to be able to get down next to the Mill buildings, this is probably the only view of them without safety fencing in the shot.
Week 14: Testing out the new adobe RAW profiles that were released this week. Applied 'Modern 04', which I quite like, and made a few tone curve adjustments in Lightroom Classic. What we're looking at here is the workbench in Gerry's shed.
Week 13: Inside the jewellery workshop at the Glamorous Owl in Newcastle. We made silver rings. The scariest part was wielding that blowtorch you can see on the table.
Week 12: Taken with my Iphone SE while I waited on my train to Lochwinnoch. It was a beautiful morning and the station was looking magic.
Week 11: A daffodil. I don't like photographing yellow flowers so I made it monotone with a gentle tone.
Week 10: Took a walk through Jesmond Dene with Janice. Never tried a long exposure of water before and didn't have a tripod so I placed the camera on the side of the bridge and hoped for the best. Managed 2secs @ f/11, iso 80 with built in +3 ND filter.
Week 9 - Taken on Girvan seafront during a 1 hour photowalk. For this walk I chose the Canon 5D with the 50mm 1.8. It was a beautiful day but still biting cold.
Week 8: Turning my wee nephew into a poser. Glasses provided by Mum. Some slight retouching in photoshop but mostly to remove chocolate milkshake from his face.
Week 7: Continuing the reflections theme with another experiment. Taken at Chillingham road metro station with the Sony RX100III. Toned with a film LUT in Photoshop CC.
Week 6: On my way to Newcastle and the train stopped at Haymarket. I've been thinking about reflections and having fore, mid and background elements. I like the colours most of all.
Week 5: A short photowalk in Rosshall Gardens this week. I limit myself to one lens. I took my olympus 45mm (90mm equiv). I found this thorny creeper sneaking it's way into one of the grotto cave sections that have been built around the park.
Week 4: Been in Keswick this week. We braved the weather one afternoon to visit Castlerigg Stone Circle situated just outside the town. 
Week 3: It's been a cold, wintery week here in GLasgow. The train provides respite from the skating rink pavements and provides a rare opportunity to remove my gloves.
Week 2: My Canonet 28 with Photopia range finder. One of the best looking cameras in my collection, It's patiently waiting on repair and refurbishment. Sadly there's a bit of fungus in the lens so it'll never regain it's peak performance but I'm still looking forward to putting some film though it in the near future.
Week 1 - St Mary's lighthouse, Whitely Bay.
A starter for inspiration. Taken January 2017 and given a film grade in December 2017 to see what happened.
